Our comfortable house is perfect for families or a few couples who want a quiet and clean place to stay, minutes to both Downtown Charleston and several beaches. A minute or two walk away you will find all of the essentials - a grocery store, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, a brewery, and even a pet store. Byrnes Downs is a quaint historic neighborhood great for morning or evening strolls. Our house has everything you need to enjoy a nice getaway in the Lowcountry while you feel right at home.
Everything in our house is on one level. Each bedroom has a closet and is nicely appointed. We are at the house frequently so we have it set up the way we like it, with comfortable furniture and decor that reflects our style. Kids and dogs are a big part of our life so the house is great for families with little ones and well-behaved fur-children (one dog only please - email for exceptions). Fancy a drink? We provide an honor system bar for our guests - particularly handy for late arrivals or stressful travel days. The backyard is fenced in and has a nice patio with a table and a charcoal grill - perfect for enjoying fresh local seafood. We have a Nest Thermostat and Fire/Carbon Monoxide detector to make sure you are safe and comfortable. If you need to wash clothes, please use our washer, dryer and supplies! Please note that the king bedroom adjoins the twin bedroom, so those rooms are best suited for families or close friends. Our L-shaped couch comfortably sleeps two, while a queen, king and two twin beds make up the rest of the sleeping options.
Guests have access to the entire property.
Interaction with guests
We will be out of your way, but we will always make ourselves available should you need anything at all.
Other things to note
While we certainly want you to enjoy yourself at our house, out of respect for our neighbors we don't recommend renting if you plan to throw loud parties. The yard is fenced in but dogs that may have been Houdini in a previous life could potentially squeeze through slats, so let them roam at your risk. We supply a charcoal grill and chimney but please bring your own charcoal. While the house is child-friendly we wouldn't consider it child-proof, so as always, keep an eye on your kiddos. We have Apple TV with a Sling account for premium channels, and an HD antenna for local channels. We use a french press coffee maker and will have supplies for you.

My family loves Charleston and though I don't live there full time anymore, we come so often that we have our own little place in Byrnes Downs. I studied historic preservation in grad school in Charleston and actually did a project in Byrnes Downs which is how we came to know about such a cute little quiet area. I now work in historic preservation and my wife works in real estate. We have a daughter and a lab who love to travel everywhere with us.
